Should I Get an Eye Lift?
Eye lift surgery is done on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. During eye lift surgery an incision is made that traces the natural fold of the upper lid and extends a little beyond the outside corner. The sagging skin is separated from the fatty tissue and muscle underneath and removed. A small amount of fat pads are also removed for those with puffy upper eyelids. Excess fat from the lower eyelid can be removed through an incision made inside the lower lid. For those with excess skin in the lower eyelid, the incision is made along the natural crease of the skin right below the eye. Following eye lift surgery you may experience mild discomfort, bruising and swelling.
After the eye lift procedure Dr. Durgin will give you oral medication and cold compresses to ease the discomfort and control the swelling. Avoid heavy lifting or vigorous activities for 4-6 weeks after eye lift surgery. Your sutures are usually removed within 3-10 days. Once sutures are removed and the swelling and bruising decreases, you will begin to see results.
